What Are Hedge Apples Good For?

When collecting the hedge apples to use for cancer treatment, can you collect them from the tree or do you need to let them fall off first?

Hedgeapples are not poisonous. However, Hedge apples have suffocated livestock by lodging in their esophagus. Very often a Hedge apple is incorrectly referred to as a Hedge Ball, Horse Apple, Green Brains, Monkey Balls or Mock Orange.

They are used in households to repel spiders. Each Hedge apple lasts about 2-3 months for this.

I do not know of any cancer use and in doing research did not come across any reference to that use.

Human consumption is not recommended and the contact with skin could bring various issues from itching, etc

seriously? hedgeapple? That is not what they are called...
Most people and stores I've been to refer to them Hedge Balls, they are related to the Osage-Orange. Maybe that's where you got confused...

I am 62 yrs old and have always heard them called hedge apples. I used to pick them all the time for my mom and two aunts to put around the house.

HEDGE APPLE. YEA we know they say hedge apple's are posinus. WRONG!!!!! I AM LIVING PROOF. LET me explain if you will. I've been eating them ever since I was diagnosed with Stage 4 bone cancer. After 2 table spoons once a day for the last 6 mths. I'm dead serious people as to what I'm saying. I TOOK ANOTHER CAT SC AN LA ST WEEK . I WENT TO THE CANCER Dr. Wednesday scheduled to have a drug injected into my veins which would help heal the bones heal due to being made VERY fragile from the cancer. The nurse even put a pick line in me in preparation to inject the meds. Then I saw the Dr. Prior to the meds being injected in me.This was his exact words after comparing the Cat scans.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'VE DO ING Charles Taylor BUT DON'T STOP. then he took the port out. I'm thinking this is not going to be good, then he said that the spot in my lung had shrunk an the bones we're showing signs of healing. No people I'm not lying. It is the truth. HEDGE APPLE has been proven to slow cancer by 80%. 45% of people go in full remission, while some rare cases show no change at all. Needless to say I'm e static about the results and will continue eating them. Google them. Life just took a whole meaning for me. THE PRAYERS I THANK YOU FOR, AN MAY YOU CONTINUE KEEPING MY FAMILY IN THEM.

I have never heard of hedge apples in my part of the U.S. but I give God praise and thanks that you have had such a success using them. Keep it up!

We wait until they hit the ground. The thorns of the tree make it hard to actually pick them. They usually begin falling off in mid-September. We have two people we know of that have successfully used this for cancer treatment. The Amish suggested it first to a man with lymphoma.

Another woman in Cartersville, GA has been told by her doctors that it is a miracle. The doctors, of course, can't condone the use of a natural treatment because they might be held responsible if it doesn't work.

There are several pages on the Internet about the use of hedge apples for treating cancer.

I would not rely on them as a Cancer treatment unless research has demonstrated that it truly is a cure or an adjunctive treatment that had some benefit and not just an old wives tale. Doctors generally won't condone anything that has not been proven to help which is done through clinical trials and not hearsay. If horse apples were found to be a bonafide treatment for Cancer I would think we would have all heard about it by now

Pharmaceutical companies have the U.S. wrapped around their little finger and if you think they are going to let any natural element to be used without hushing it up or downright taking legal action against anyone claiming it to be a cure you are terribly mis-informed.

I became very interested in this topic because we had a patient that was eating the hedge apple because of what he heard from the Amish. He is now bleeding throughout his lungs and may not live. He did not tell anyone that he was using the hedge apple but it has messed up his clotting cascade and may not live. Feel it is very important for anyone to tell their doctor or family they are using it, in the event some problem arises. Please be careful.
